The Sociological Tradition

When first published, "The Sociological Tradition "had a profound and positive impact on sociology, providing a rich sense of intellectual background to a relatively new discipline in America. Robert Nisbet describes what he considers the golden age of sociology, 1830-1900, outlining five major themes of nineteenth-century sociologists: community, authority, status, the sacred, and alienation. Nisbet focuses on sociology's European heritage, delineating the arguments of Tocqueville, Marx, Durkheim, and Weber in new and revealing ways. When the book initially appeared, the "Times Literary Supplement "noted that "this thoughtful and lucid guide shows more clearly than any previous book on social thought the common threads in the sociological tradition and the reasons why so many of its central concepts have stood the test of time." And Lewis Coser, writing in the "New York Times Book Review, "claimed that "this lucidly written and elegantly argued volume should go a long way toward laying to rest the still prevalent idea that sociology is an upstart discipline, unconcerned with, and alien to, the major intellectual currents of the modern world." Its clear and comprehensive analysis of the origins of this discipline ensures "The Sociological Tradition "a permanent place in the literature on sociology and its origins. It will be of interest to those interested in sociological theory, the history of social thought, and the history of ideas. Indeed, as Alasdair Maclntyre observed: "We are unlikely to be given a better book to explain to us the inheritance of sociology from the conservative tradition."

The meso-level realm of social reality is structured by corporate and categoric units, along with their respective cultures. Unlike the macro and micro realms of social reality, the meso-level does not reveal its own unique forces. Rather, the dynamics of meso-structures and cultures are driven by macro- and micro-level forces pushing on individual and collective actors as they build corporate units and develop parameters defining membership in particular social categories.

Die protestantische Ethik und der Geist des Kapitalismus

Author: Max Weber

Die protestantische Ethik und der Geist des Kapitalismus ist ein Werk von Max Weber, das zuerst in Form eines zweiteiligen Aufsatzes im 1905 veröffentlicht wurde. Es zählt neben Webers Schrift Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft zu seinen international wichtigsten Beiträgen zur Soziologie und ist ein grundlegendes Werk der Religionssoziologie. Zwischen der protestantischen Ethik und dem Beginn der Industrialisierung bzw. des Kapitalismus in Westeuropa besteht nach diesem Werk ein enger Zusammenhang. Die Kompatibilität ("Wahlverwandtschaften") der Ethik oder religiösen Weltanschauung der Protestanten, insbesondere der Calvinisten, und dem kapitalistischen Prinzip der Akkumulation von Kapital und Reinvestition von Gewinnen waren ein idealer Hintergrund für die Industrialisierung. Weber stellt sich die Frage, warum die moderne Kultur gerade im Okzident entstanden sei und sich z. B. nicht (auch) in China oder Indien, also im Orient, entwickelt habe, bzw. warum sie in Westeuropa nicht schon früher aufgetreten sei. Er führt dies auf einen "spezifisch gearteten Rationalismus der okzidentalen Kultur" zurück. Sein Ziel ist daher, die besondere Eigenart des okzidentalen Rationalismus und insbesondere seine moderne Variante zu erkennen und ihre Erstehung zu erklären. Max Weber (1864-1920) war ein deutscher Soziologe, Jurist und Nationalökonom. Global wird Webers Werk übergreifend von verschiedenen politischen und wissenschaftstheoretischen Lagern anerkannt. Er nahm mit seinen Theorien und Begriffsdefinitionen großen Einfluss auf die Wirtschafts-, die Herrschafts- und die Religionssoziologie sowie auf weitere spezielle Soziologien. Außerdem ist das Prinzip der Wertneutralität auf ihn zurückzuführen.
